New Haven, CT (WFSB) — A veteran K-9 officer takes his last ride.
Rocky has been with the Rocky Hill Police Department in Connecticut for nine years.
Last week, he was diagnosed with cancer.
His handlers chose to put him to sleep so he doesn't suffer.
Monday, Rocky took his final ride to the vet in a police cruiser with officers from Rocky Hill as well as nearby towns gathering to salute their fellow officer and say goodbye.
